SOLUTION MENU

Large-format print

Using one of the highest quality large UV flatbed printers,
we produce large format prints
with extreme precision and detail.
The possibilities are truly endless from creating a visual impact
at events to improving the look and feel of the office environment.
It is also ideal for producing outdoor signages
that can withstand the effects of rain and sun.

Giclée & Fine Art Print

Our dedicated printing directors will bring
exceptional quality print solutions that bring your artwork to life.
We offer an unparalleled range of superior fine paper
produced by brands from around the world,
including excellent quality Japanese handmade paper,
cotton-based fine art paper, films,
and fabric to help you explore
the widest possible range of artistic expression.

UV print

UV flatbed printers are capable of handling a wide range of
innovative applications on rigid and flexible media,
which opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
It allows us to print on practically any substrate
of uniform structure up to 50 mm in thickness.
Media options include popular substrates such as
aluminium composite material, styrene board, wood,
metal, and a vast range of plastic materials.

Silver Print

As one of Japan’s leading photo lab, TCK
delivers exceptional print quality
that professional photographers and artists demand.
We believe it is our mission to encourage experimentation
and enable new ways of expression to turn fleeting moments
captured by the camera into beautiful prints.

Acrylic Photos

We offer two types of acrylic photos- Mount and Direct.
In both ways, the image will be on the back of the acrylic,
so it is possible to create a clear, deep expression.

Acrylic photos are easy to handle, water and light resistant,
and can be enjoyed for a long time.
They are perfect as a personalized gift
and great for turning your artwork into a product.
The light-capturing properties of the material
are particularly suitable for futuristic images
such as computer graphics and adding extra sizzle
to your photographs with a sleek, glossy finish.
With UV flatbed printing, you can turn your ideas into reality.
For example, you may leave some areas untouched
to take advantage of the high transparency of
acrylic or print a message in white ink on the surface of the sheet.

Aluminium Mount

Your image will look spectacular mounted
on a 3 mm-thick aluminium composite material.
Aluminium composite material is a type of flat panel
consisting of two thin aluminium sheets
bonded to a solid polyethylene core.
They have superb surface flatness.
Even panels larger than B0 (1030 x 1456 mm)
will not warp or buckle.

Wood photo panel

If you like a look that’s both natural and artistic,
look no further than our wood mount prints.
It is suitable for a wide range of situations,
from photographic exhibitions to hanging
your favorite pictures in your room.
We wrap a black or white decorative tape around the board
so that the adhesive doesn’t come in contact with the artwork.

Wood frame

At FLAT LABO, every frame is hand made
by our skilled framers to your exact specifications.
Real wood picture frames have a special character
that cannot be matched by off-the-shelf products.
We also offer a range of affordable moldings to choose from.

Aluminium frame

Explore our collection of high-quality aluminium picture frame moldings,
carefully selected from Japan and around the world.
Made from lightweight aluminium,
they are sturdy and durable with a thin, elegant profile.
They offer a sleek and clean look to match any style
and can be made to size.
They can be found in museums and galleries.

Matboard

Mounting boards offer superior protection
by creating an empty space between the glass and the print.
In addition, they can help make your artwork stand out
by creating white space around it.
Generally, we attach prints to a mounting board before framing.

Light box frame

Our photographic lightboxes combine
a slim and stylish aluminium frame and high brightness LED lights.
FLAT LABO’s LED-backlit lightbox solutions are an easy way
to bring your vision to life while making use of
the dramatic effect of an illuminated image.

Scan

At FLAT LABO, we use an ultra-high precision
non-contact line scanner
to deliver the world’s highest resolution images.
It is great not only for scanning museum collections
but also for scanning cultural heritage objects or precious
and fragile dry or wet plate collodion negatives.
Using state-of-the-art technology, we can convert your artwork
into digital data to be used in a wide range of applications,
including reproducing artwork
and being incorporated into video work.

Exhibition

Leveraging our extensive specialist knowledge and experience
in all aspects of exhibition design,
we will develop the best solution for each project
to allow viewers to have inspiring
and meaningful experiences with the art.
We can help you find the right printing method
and frame to best display your art, as well as advise
on the optimum size and number of exhibits
based on the architecture of the space.
FLAT LABO provides comprehensive support,
including strategic marketing and effective advertising
that achieves successful results.
